Meaning and history

Transamerica Logo history


The Transamerica visual identity is probably one of the most recognizable insurance firm’s logos ever. Composed of a wordmark and an emblem, its last version was designed in 1989 and remains untouched until today.
The sharp and stylish company’s logo has no age and looks contemporary and actual. Undoubtedly, it will remain the same in the nearest future, as its perfect execution and style have no reason to be changed.

1928 — 1968

The earliest versions of the company’s logo features a monochrome wordmark with a monogram. The lettering was placed around a circular perimeter and a bold symbol was placed inside.
The lowercase letters of the “AT” symbol were executed in an extra bold serif typeface, which looked professional yet friendly and memorable. As for the company’s name, it was written in all capitals with the use of a thin and clean sans-serif font, evoking a sense of lightness and balancing the emblem.

1968 — 1989

The logo was redesigned in 1968 by Don Erwin from Sandgren & Murtha design bureau. Now it was a modern and minimalist emblem, executed in a calm shade of green. The image was composed of six lines, which were placed vertically in two groups of three lines each.
Their ends were curved to the sides from the center, resembling a fountain or an Art-Deco column.
It was a contemporary and remarkable design, reflecting progress and power of the company and showing it as a professional and reliable one, aiming to protect their customers.

1983

The new emblem was created in 1983 by the same agency, but different designer — Thomas Bond. The new image became a prototype of the company’s logo, officially registered in 1989.
The emblem depicted an image of the Transamerica Pyramid, which was built in 1972 in San Francisco. The pyramid was designed by William Pereira and is 260 meters high. Until 2018 it was the tallest building in the city and in 1972 it was on the 18th place in the world’s ranking.
The architecturally perfect image was drawn in red in order to reflect innovation and longevity of the firm, showing its power and passion.

1989 — Today

The distinctive emblem became a part of the company’s official logo in 1989. The red image was placed on the left of the wordmark, which was colored blue.
The blue red and white color palette of the firm’s visual identity is a tribute to its roots and heritage. The colors of the American flag represent justice, purity and hardiness, making a perfect eye-catching combination.

Font

The Transamerica wordmark in all capitals has its first “T” enraged and is executed in an elegant and traditional serif typeface, which is Classical Garamond Std Roman font, designed in the beginning of the 1920s. This old-style font is a reflection of traditional approach and timeless beauty and sophistication.
